the united states needs to do is take the kind of leadership that will organize the international community to address these crises, and it does not appear that is happening in the way that is productive and it's the result that we want. which is basically not to have the interest at the military level. at least two other feelings, the power vacuum, and ultimately, those who fall into the power vacuum are radical islamists. >> while americans still have widespread support from libya, shown by pro-western demonstrations, they need the help of the libyan government to track down the ambassador's killers. >> with america and now, based on the old strategy or tactics, and that means all the work done by president obama's administration has just disappeared. it is like a waste of time. i believe america successfully manage to pull itself out of the so-called war on terror, which is very important for the future between us and america and the arab world. >> it is also the new arab leaders. they met in europe this week to seek financial assistance. >> we stand against anybody who harbors these fau

home and figure out what they will do and the relationship they will have with the united states and control radical islamism in their country. >> congressman allen west will join us for tomorrow for a special edition of justice. definitely the question is, be those governments control the radical islamist. good evening, ambassador. >> good tock with you. >> ambassador, why is this happening? >> i think what is been going across the middle east for the several yearings has been a wave of radical islamism. a high loo politicizing version of an extreme interpretation of the muslim religion and it is it gaining force it most vividly in the terrorist actions that hes bollah and hamas. and we see it as the 18 months of what some people thought was arab spring. it was not a democracy movement and may have been against the rulers in libya and tunisia and else where. but it was not for a swift democracy. the proof is in the streets that's threat we face. >> this is it a country we help tod liberate. benghazi is a city that we defended. how could we not have known that based on the instan
